I just put my roll pan on today and i was wondering if i could use this red LED light i had sitting in the garage because it would look sick

but my question is...is its legal to use red for your license plate in georgia?

I know here you can't use the lighted license plate bolts, I'm sure for the plate light it would be illegal as well.

I live in Alaska, I have amber led plate lights on my 08 silvy. The only color we can't use is blue. also the light cannot flash (like blue turn signal lamps)

good choice, little things like that are just more reasons for a cop to stop you and find other illegal things wrong with your truck, or you.

Illegal in Texas...I use to run blue LP lights and never had any troubles but all my friends got pulled over all the time. Get some hyperwhite/led license plate lights. They look pretty cool and are legal...at least in Texas

i know its not legal here but i got red light in for my plate lights. I got pulled over like two weeks for my radio being to loud and all he said about my lights is they looked nice but they really should be white ones because he could write me a ticket for them but wasn't going to

Agreed. I put hyperwhite LEDs in my license plate lights and they look nice. Just a nice clean pure white color, close to a fluorescent light tone in color. I know in Texas, for example, you pretty much aren't allowed to run anything red or blue with the exception of your rear brake lights (red) and blue is pretty much illegal front to back side to side and even under body lights like a neon light kit.

www.superbrightleds.com Get some hyper-white 194 LED bulbs with 6 LEDs on each bulb IMO.

If they're illegal it'd be questionable as it's still white, just not a more yellow white like a classic bulb would be. What brand is your roll pan? Reason I ask is the license plate light kit some brands utilize (like a Sir Michaels pan) uses a sealed light box.

Just thought of a cool idea that would work great on a rollpan...one of our PV's sells it.

Tuck this "tape" all the way across the top and it should light up the whole plate and have that nice pure white color you're looking for. Main reason I'd consider this over just replacing your bulbs with LEDs is the problem I ran into with using LEDs on my stock bumper license plate lights. It doesn't light up as well as a stock bulb. I think it's a combination of the color and the way LEDs sometimes don't spread around as much light as a standard clear incandescent bulb would. IOW, while the LED is actually brighter, the way it's designed the light doesn't create a large spread like a standard bulb.

Either our LED Tape or our Lighted License Plate Bolts
